Our fantastic dinner at Cucina Marangon

Hi guys!

A couple of weeks ago, the boyfriend and I were invited by my parents to go to dinner at Cucina Marangon. It’s a fantastic Italian restaurant in Turnhout, Belgium. No. No pizza or spaghetti bolognaise… It’s a very classy restaurant. Once you go black Cucina Marangon, you can’t go back! 😉

Why we went to this restaurant? Because my parents had something to celebrate: Their 25th Marriage Anniversary! 😀 Hip Hip Hooray!

Let me walk you through our great evening. I do have to apologize for not having pictures of the delicious appetizers because we couldn’t keep our hands off… Sorry!

I’m also very sorry for the bad quality of my pictures. I forgot my camera and since the restaurant is so cozy, it’s difficult to take good pictures. If you have any tips or tricks to fix that, please let me know 🙂

I do have a picture of this mini pizza appetizer which was great!

Let’s start our 5 courses menu 🙂 My mom and the boyfriend took the adapted wines. I sticked with water and my dad (our driver) had a special ‘Bob arrangement’ :p That meant he could take a sip of every wine ^^

Starter Cucina Marangon

Course 1: Tuna | Pumpkin coulis | French dressing from pine nuts | Beans


Course 2: Tagliolini Vongole


Course 3: Risotto with rabbit, truffle & vanilla

Oh man. I LOVE Risotto and this one was soooo good! Yumm!


Main Course: Duck with polenta croquettes

My two favorite meats: rabbit and duck. Lucky me! 😀


Dessert: Soufflé Glacé Marsala

A yummy trio with amarena cherries 🙂 I especially liked the tiramisu with this cherry (the one on the left)

And as if that wasn’t enough:


Homemade Cookies!

Was it good? No. It was great! 😀

Look at this glass of wine, it’s insanely big! Our friendly sommelier told us it fits a whole bottle… Can you believe it 😮


If you ever get the chance to go to Cocina Marangon, please go there. You won’t regret 😉

Have a delicious day ❤
